    Eager to give the space its own charm, the couple decided to gut the penthouse, hiring interior designer Michael Aiduss of Michael Aiduss Interiors + Architecture. Mr. Redick declined to disclose the cost of the renovation.

    “Essentially every fixture has been replaced with their own selection,” Ms. Koxvold said.

    Mr. Aiduss said his design was inspired by European interiors. One of the bathrooms has a vanity sink that was carved and gilded in Florence, Italy, he said. In the kitchen, the custom-designed cabinetry is a deep Aegean blue fitted with brass trim.

    “The kitchen is sort of the centerpiece and the showstopper of the apartment,” Mr. Redick said. “It’s also where we spend most of our time, given that it’s adjacent to the family room and the television.”

    The penthouse comes with about 2,500 square feet of private outdoor living space, with a wraparound terrace on each level, Mr. Redick said. The terrace on the main floor has a grilling station and an enclosed area surrounded by hedges.

    “We spent a ton of time and resources on planning a beautiful outdoor space,” Mr. Redick said. “It’s what makes our apartment so unique.”


    Needless to say but JJ Redick and his wife have excellent taste.


    The Redicks, who have two children, rented at 51 Jay during the renovation, then moved into the penthouse in 2019, Mr. Redick said. They still plan on living in Brooklyn, he said, but they want to move closer to their children’s school in Brooklyn Heights.

    Hard not to notice a lot of dark blue in the color schemes.

    Podcast is one thing, the bright lights and huge audience is another. Whom he is paired with is also a huge factor in his success.

    Our own Shane Battier gave it a go and seemed to have some difficulty getting his personality across. Even Grant hasn't been an A+, although part of that is that I think Bill Raftery is a bit passive aggressive towards him.

    My point is that nothing is guaranteed. I hope JJ does well. He is one of my favorite Duke players of all time and I happened to meet him by chance about 10 years ago. He was incredibly gracious and kind.
    JJ has been podcasting for a while so a bit different than Shane and Grant. I suspect he is not doing it for the money but for an opportunity to grow. We will see.

    The money assuages the growing pains - and also pays for watches.

    Good call on the watches, but I either read or heard him talk about how he kind of dropped that habit because despite his millions he found the conspicuous consumption to be impractical and a bit gauche. I think he pared his collection way down to maybe 3 that he loves and got rid of the rest. I think our man had 20+ at some point including all kinds of special custom made carrying cases and such. He definitely is someone way into aesthetics, though...

    It’s an interesting PR decision when rich people decide to lay out their acquisitions. JJ’s unusual level of focus allows him to lay out the details of consumer items I’ve never heard of (secret panel for fancy wine glasses?). Maybe they’re just trying to max the sales price or are advertising his wife’s real estate career. I guess celebs do such things just to get their names out there, but I don’t see how it helps a career within sports announcing. Neutral at best, imho. Maybe they’re just proud of their apartment and want to show off their creative collaboration with their decorator. I’d kinda rather watch him shoot jump shots.

    JJ appears on Tuesdays on NBA Today on ESPN (3:00-4:00). Sometimes he is in the studio. He comments on NBA teams. He thinks the Lakers need a quality outside shooter like himself .

    If someone paid $8.5M cash, they'd still owe over $7k/month in taxes/common charges. Nice place.

    Yep. That's what kept me from buying it.

    I, on the other hand, just didn’t want to undertake another remodel.

    How’s he doing? I have not had a chance to catch his show.

    This exchanged happened today w/ Stephen A Smith saying players don't fear LBJ:

    JJ Reddick just told @stephenasmith, "I dont know if you actually believe what you are saying!" Then SAS tried to say, when you watch the game.. JJ said, No, I played the game, Im telling you that you are wrong"

    So, yeah, I'd say JJ is killing it!

    looks like he gave Stephen A Smith a 'come to Jesus'

    SAS said no one in the NBA feared LeBron James. JJ said something along the lines of 'I don't think you believe that'

    When SAS continued to argue his point, JJ basically told him he didn't know what he was talking about.

    You gotta love JJ.

    By the end SAS had no idea what his own argument even was. Blowhard.

    Here's the exchange (or rather, the Stephen A. Smith rant with occasional JJ Redick interruptions):



    Despite all that airtime, Stephen A. Smith never fully shaped his idea to form a point. I guess he was just rephrasing the old argument that LeBron James lacks the killer competitive instinct of Michael Jordan? To have that instinct is to be feared by others? I'm not sure. JJ Redick did all right, considering he had to argue with someone who had no real argument, which in my experience is never easy.

    Does he EVER make a point during his shouted rants?

    Taxes 3k/mo, common charges 4k/mo - so costs 85k/yr to own. Yikes!
    edit: nm, I didn’t see the posts that beat me to it.

    I guess it’s clear that JJ doesn’t fear Stephen A Smith.

    JJ will do fine but he’ll probably get frustrated with the “hot take” conflict-driven programming that dominates sports coverage these days. I think ESPN underestimates their audience’s desire for informed and level debate but Stephen A is still around so what do I know.
